8:13 pm
>> good morning, supervisors. i have lived in san francisco for 60 years. i would like to speak in favor of this resolution. this is money that is going to be well spent, especially since the previous speaker mentioned it would be for four more years. we are talking about big money here rather than just a one-your item. since we're talking big money, i would like to say my usual statement about the department of public health. from my experience at san francisco general hospital, we have to closely monitoring the spending to make sure as little money as possible is wasted on waste and inefficiency. i would also like to make a statement whether how much of
8:14 pm
the money being discussed here will actually be used for services to the recipient and how much would be used for so- called administrative costs. listening to the previous speaker, i thought since this was going to be between different administrative bodies that may be the money is going to be spent for administration rather than services. i would like to propose a discussion on how much money is going to be used for services to that and recipients rather than just administrative costs and i would expect as the program goes forward that more and more money be spent on the recipients rather than administrative costs. thank you. >> are there other members of

8:20 pm
8:21 pm
supervisor elsbernd: i know this is not the committee would usually come and appear before to talk about the budget, but knowing we are facing a two-year budget, a big discussion and a lot of issues out there and i want to give you the opportunity to present to the members of the board -- other members of the public, a chance to testify. and have a robust conversation as we get ready to present to the board your two-year budget.
8:22 pm
>> good morning. i'm the director of transportation and i think it is wholly fitting we come to the neighborhood services because the transportation services provided by the m.t.a. are very much neighborhood services. i think we are scheduled to come to the budget committee on april 18. between now and then, we will have some town hall meetings around the city and during the month of march, we will hold our first hearing on proposed fees and affairs and consider the budget first on april 3 and then on april 17. the timing is good to give an early glimpse and try to stimulate some of that robust conversation.
8:23 pm
i do have a power point i will walk through and i look forward to any questions a d a v have. i am going to first talk about the operating budget on the expenditure and revenue side and then talk about the capital budget. we've brought this to the mta board in a preliminary fashion and i am bringing to you what i have shared with them as well. on the revenue side, here is what the picture looks like in terms of baseline. the main message here is that if you look at the funding overall, we are about a quarter of general fund, a quarter of general affairs, one-third from parking, and the rest from grants and at other miscellany and we don't expect that to change. we are about 800 million on the
8:24 pm
revenue side. this is more or less just continuing afford what we have now. changes through indexing -- i have a slide of later that will show that. supervisor elsbernd: what is the formula that produces your general fund allotment? >> we get 80% or and -- a payment of 80% of the parking tax. >> in terms of the projections for the next year, does this include the revenue news that we had with the six-month? >> this includes what we know at this point in time. once the joint report comes out, we expect things to turn a
8:25 pm
little more favorably. they just had a modest change that would add either 10 or $13 million to this fiscal year but we will make a more complete adjustment after the joint report comes out. supervisor chu: thank you. >> on the expenditure side, this is not just the baseline. this takes the baseline for word, which, as with all the other city agencies sought expenditures growing much faster than revenue growth. that includes a bunch of proposed cuts we have put in place in terms of calculations here, cuts in management, cut and overtime, not budgeted over
8:26 pm
time. to reduce the overtime expenditure in the first year and reduce it further in the second year. other miscellaneous cuts, including the equipment budget. what i have also done here is included some relatively modest investment i think need to be made to properly fund the level of service we are expected to provide an those admissions are primarily in the areas of maintenance. in the past years, as the revenue growth has failed to keep up with an expenditure growth and we have not significantly cut service, we have frozen the hiring of the maintenance positions of the
8:27 pm
people who clean the vehicles and provide the training for the operators and we have been somewhat short changing the system in order to keep service on the street. but that lack of funding yields open runs and vehicles that are not properly maintained and that are breaking down and adversely impact services. after taking cuts out of the baseline, i propose to properly if not fully fund maintenance and other ancillary functions, including safety staff and enhanced fair inspection and felice staffing the crossing guard program. >> -- supervisor olague: because a
8:28 pm
supervisor elsbernd had to leave, i would like to recommend continuing at this. >> there are a number of different items that we do have and that is something we can take a look at. but it might make sense to have a supervisor elsbernd here when we are discussing it. perhaps we can go to public comment. we will entertain a continuance to the call of the chair. why don't we open this up for public comment? supervisor campos: i know there are a number of people here to speak on this, but out of courtesy to supervisor elsbernd, we should continue this. supervisor chu: i would like to
8:29 pm
open this up to public comment. believe we will have this come before the committee again and there will be opportunity for public comment, but the folks have made the trip out here to speak, i would like to offer the opportunity to speak? -- i would like to offer the opportunity to speak. any members of the public who wish to speak on this item? >> out of respect, we're going -- we have some video presentations and we're looking forward to the conversation. thousands of young people have been working with supervisor campos and the board of the mta to address the needs of low- me
